Key Equipment

Method


STEP 1: Make the choux pastry ball

  1. Preheat your oven to 180C (fan-force).

  2. Place all of the milk, water, butter, sugar and salt in a medium pot, and bring to a rolling boil over medium heat.

  3. Add the flour, and mix well with a wooden spoon.

  4. Reduce to a low heat, and continue mixing for 1 minute to cook the paste.

  5. Electric hob? You may need to take your pot off the heat entirely to avoid burning the mix.

  6. Transfer the dough to a mixing bowl, or the bowl of a stand mixer outfitted with the paddle attachment.

  7. Beat the mixture until slightly cooled, then gradually incorporate the eggs until combined into a uniform paste.

  8. IMPORTANT: A piping hot mixture will scramble the eggs.

  9. Line a baking tray with baking paper or Silpat.

  10. Transfer the dough into a piping bag with a nozzle, and pipe onto the tray in small balls, the size of a large walnut.

  11. Bake for 20 minutes till puffed up and golden brown.

STEP 2: Make the chocolate sauce

  1. Bring the milk and honey to a boil in a pot.

  2. Once boiling, add the chocolate and whisk till smooth.

  3. Whisk in the butter to finish off the sauce.

STEP 3: Make the Chantilly cream

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a mixing bowl, and whisk till thick with a whisk or electric mixer.

  2. Transfer the cream to a piping bag with a nozzle.

STEP 4: Finish the profiteroles

  1. Poke the bottom of the choux ball with a sharp tool, leaving hole big enough for your piping bag nozzle. Fill generously with the cream.

  2. Dust with icing sugar, and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
